I run it as administrator so I dont understand why it doesnt want to continue. do I need to reinstall the entire game? phew I hope not sigh... Hope somebody knows whats going on with this error and how I could fix it :-/ thanks for taking your time reading this or answering it..

    I had to run into work for a bit and came back home to find that I was examining game date after over three hours of being left to run, this is not fun.

    OK Guys i knowm ur frustrated but thanks another in the tech thread, called Testis, he came up with this and it working for me and others who try it

    Still having a problem? Go to your Turbine folder in your Program Files (X86). Open The Lord of the Rings Online. Delete or move client_anim.dat through client_surface.dat. There are about 13 files. Restart the game. It'll update, get new files and start you on your way.

    Tried the administrator "trick" but didn't work.

    I deleted the files instead of moving them for the trick, but now I get a new error after completely finishing patching and logging in a window appears that says "ERROR:201 can't find dat files"

    I guess this didn't do the trick afterall for me.

    Dowloading by this new fix; all fine at this moment

    im not going to do anymore downloading, n run the risk of just continuously downloading non fixes,everything ive treid has only got me half way, and still gets me 201 error's and just using my load limit without knowing it, i have a 2 day course to go to so i'll try again n frank if i see the game pak in stores i will be buying it rather than download and a pre back up thing to a fresh re install and a last ditch solution >_< =/ =(

    This seems to be the only solution but it is stupid that people have to redownload this whole client again.....
